Yagna Phala Stotram
Yagna Phala Stotram...
Nyasam Asya sri yajna phala stotramala maha mantrasya Chaitanya amrta rshaye namaha sirasi
That’s what She gave. There are always two meanings: This stotram is a mala mantram. It has flown out of the consciousness of Chaitanyam—of pure consciousness—and it has been bathed in nectar. The second meaning is, it has flown from the pure consciousness of Chaitanyananda and Amritananda.
avyakta Gayatri chandase namaha mukha vrtte Sri Lalita Maha Tripurasundari devataya namaha hrdaye
The Gayathri this is pointing to is not clear, or avyaktam. And the deity for this stotram is Lalita herself. Aim bijam—the seed here is Saraswati herself kleem saktih—the power for this comes from the bijaakshara kleem, representing Lakshmi sauh keelakam—it is secured and anchored on keelakam Sri Lalita Maha Tripurasundari prasada siddhyarthe jape viniyogaha—to get the grace of Sri Lalita, this stotram is being done.
I won’t go into the angan-nyasam and karun-nyasam, because it is the sadanga-nyasam that we should all
be familiar with by now.
Pratidine trikale trikona sikhara nilaye
Everyday, three times a day—after the last triangle, what is there? The bindu. She’s indicating what is above the last triangle on top of the mountain (the Meru) without saying it outright.
Svaprakasa vimarsa nirmala akase |
Here, there’s a double meaning: She’s talking about something selfeffulgent in Svaprakasa, but it is also the name of my parama guru. She’s saying this stotram is coming from Svaprakasa’s effulgence. His express, unblemished words are coming from his internal space.
Amrta mangalya jiva mantra abharane
This refers to how the mangalyam in the old days did not hang like a chain, but was worn tight around the neck like a choker. Jiva is life, and the life-force is present like the mangalyam at the throat. But what is She
really telling you? Concentrate at the visuddhi chakra in your throat during this dhyanam.
Manibhuta sura siddha avahana muhurte ||
Mani is a gemstone and bhuta refers to the elements—but what She is indicating here is the manipura chakra at the diaphragm. And what is the element there? Fire! As you’re chanting this, do the homams there, at your manipura. You are installing the suras and siddhas (the devas and holy men), but what time do you do this? At usha-kaalam, which is dawn! That is the ideal time of day to chant this.
Jñanajya ananda dravya vairagya haviragne
Your realization (jnana) is the ghee you are doing this homam with, the bliss you feel (ananda) is your homa-dravyam, and your detachment (vairagya) should be the havis (cooked offerings).
Patiradi sapta graham subha nitya yajñe |
The pati is Brihaspati—She’s telling you to begin this on his day, Thursday. For the remaining seven days,
do this homam, which is auspicious. That’s just a way to tell you to chant it daily.
Mahesardha jyoti pranava vamanga bije
What is ardha? Half! And who is the one who occupies half of Mahesha? The Devi! She is the effulgent (jyoti) and she’s on the left side of the essence of the pranavam, which is Parameshwara.
Mantra japa homa yajña sri prasada hetu ||
You can do this as a mantra japam, or a homam (for you), or a yajnam (for the whole world). If you do this, it becomes the cause (hetu) for Sri Prasadam—you will get Devi’s blessings if you do this!
1. Suddhikaram param jñanam sarvopa-drava nivaranam | Sarvavyadhi prasamanam sarvabhishta pradayakam | Chaturkona madhyastam vahnideva mavahanam ||
For purification (suddhikaram), internal realization, to ward off all difficulties, to cure all diseases, and to
fulfill all desires, install Agni deva in the middle of a square, or homakundam.
2. Prthvi loka trikundam tamra mañcha vilepanam Triguna pitha arohanam vayukona samsthitam. ||
She’s talking about using a metal homakundam that comes from the earth. Then She says what the metal should be—tamra is copper, and mancha is a bed. The homakundam is Agni’s bed. The specification is that you should sit in the northwest and do the homam.
3. Tantra marga purushottamam dharmini sahita yajamanam | Japa dhyana_aradhanam nitya yajana madhikaram. ||
Now she’s talking about who’s qualified to do the homam—a purushan who’s following the path of tantra should do the homam in the company of his wife (dharmini). Not only that—he should be doing japam, dhyanam and puja every day. But what is nitya yajana? Nitya refers to the Nitya kala devis in the Sri Chakra, and to do yajana to the Sri Chakra, a person must at least have the Pancha-dasakshari mantra. See the depth? With just word She has told you what you need.
4. Guruvâra jñâna sâdhanam sômavâra gana vasîkaram | Ahankâra úamana angârakam sarva úatru vinâúanam. ||
Now She’s telling you what the homams are about—if you do this homam on guruvara, or Thursday, you’ll get realization. If you do it on Monday, all the ganas will be attracted to you. If you want to neutralize your ego, do it on a Tuesday. It will also destroy your enemies, both internal and external.
5. Râtri muhûrtâ râdhanam úukravâra paramuttamam | Sarvâbhîshta vara pradam sakala lôka kalyânam | Úrî shodasâkshara siddhitam bhukti mukti pradâyakam. ||
If you do the homam at night on a Friday, at least for one muhurtham (about 1.5 hours), it is best. All your desires will be fulfilled, and all of creation will be taken care of if you do puja in your house on a Friday night! If you don’t have Shodasi mantra, she will come to you. Liberation and all the auspicious things will come to you.
6. Bhânu putra mçvalam lavanga pîta samarpanam | Nârî narâ karshanam bhava bandha vimôchanam | Madhu lavanga sâmantam râjayôga varapradam. ||
Who is Bhanu’s putra? Saneeshwara! And lavanga? Through mis-usage, it has come to be known as cloves, but it is really cinnamon. She specifically told me she means cinnamon, no matter what is written in the Sanskrit dictionaries. Pîta is referring to yellow silk. So if you offer yellow silk into the fire with a cinnamon stick and ghee, what will you get? Both men and women will be attracted to you but you will still be detached. Next, She says to dip the cinnamon in honey and also offer chrysanthemums. If you put these three in the fire, you’ll get the boon of Raja yoga.
7. Dçva kinnara vaúamanam úaúiputrâ dina pûjanam | Kali kalmasha nâúanam haridrânna panchâksharam ||
The devas and divine musicians will be attracted to you when you do the homam on the day of Sasi’s putra—Budhan, which is a Wednesday. Haridra refers to yellow rice. If you offer that into the fire with Om Namah Shivaya mantra, all the sins and shortcomings due to the spirit of kali in this yuga will be destroyed.
8. Sarva mrtyu nivâranam úarkarâditya tarpanam | Sapta jihvâti pûritam madhuvâjya laghu shôdaúam ||
If you offer pure sugar into the fire on Aditya’s day (Sunday) and then do tarpanam with it after the homam, untimely death will be avoided. Saptajihva (or Agni) will be pleased if you mix honey and ghee together and offer that into the fire with the Laghu Shodasi mantra.
9. Sundarî bîjâksharam trijanmârna vinâúanam | Madhuvâjya samakaram kaivalya môksha siddhitam. ||
Very interesting—why does he say Sundari’s bija in the singular? It refers to the bijakshara for all of Sri Vidya, which is Hreem. If you do the homam with just that, whatever debts you have incurred over the last three lifetimes will be destroyed. Next, if you mix havan samagri (samakaram) with honey and ghee, and offer that into the fire, you’ll get kaivalya moksha.
10. Sarva pâpa samhâram rg vçdâjya jîrakam | Trikâla karma nivâranam chaturâjya madhu sangamam. ||
All your sins will be destroyed if you offer jeera with lines from the Rg Vedam. If you don’t know much from the Rg Vedam, what can you use? Sri Suktam! That’s where it’s from. Next, all the karmas from your
past, present and future (trikala) will be destroyed if you use the four oils along with honey. What are these oils? Almond oil, sandalwood oil, ghee and sesame oil?
11. Astrâ hari samarpanam samasta vighna nivâranam | Dakshinâmûrthi darúanam suvarna ramâ_âlinganam. ||
What is the weapon Hari (Vishnu) has in his hand? The Sudarshana chakra. If you offer homam ahutis with the Sudarshana mantra in the form of a weapon, all obstacles will be removed. Not only that, Shiva in the form of the guru will appear to you—Dakshinamurthi will give you his darshanam. This is if you haven’t found your guru yet. And after that? A golden Lakshmi will appear for you, making you rich.
12. Indra râjya darúanam apsarâsura siddhitam | Nava dhânyanna viniyôgam navagrahârchita oeataphalam. ||
You will have a vision of Indra’s kingdom of heaven and gain control over all the devas and apsaras (celestial dancers). I actually tried this and saw Urvashi amma—her beauty is enough to make you go mad so you have to be able to handle this. So to get this siddhi, you must cook the nine pulses with rice and do
annadhanam. Why must you feed people like this? To do a homam in the stomach of each person you feed! And you must also do 100 archanas to the Navagrahas.
13. Navamâjya úukla sangamam gandhadravya vilçpanam | Payâsânnâ samarpakam ardhanârî navârnavam. ||
With the nine types of oils for the Navagrahas, plus elaku, offer them all in a payasam into the homam. If you do this with the right mantra, you will get the effect of doing a Navavarana puja!
14. Rakta pîtâ yajñamam chakra-râjya samyuktam | Mahâvâkya pûrnâhutam unmattânanda sâyujyam. ||
Yellow and red pieces of cloth must be taken for the yajnam. Chakra-raja is the Sri Chakra. So you must offer ahutis with the Mahavakyam mantra—She’s indirectly saying you must have full purna diksha to do this homam because you will get the blessings of Dattatreya (Unmatta).
15. Yajñaphala midam stôtram chaturdaúam çkakâlam | Yah pathçth amrta chaitanya lôka mavâpnuyath.||
Now comes the phala sruti. This stotram has 14 stanzas. If you chant them once a day, you will attain pure consciousness and you will be in bliss in Samadhi.
